My 2012 Nail Polish Favorites

Hi everyone! Today's post will feature my top picks in the nail polish category for 2012. 2012 was the year I really started to get into nail polish. I also starting doing my own manicures at home. My favorite shades to wear are neutrals, grays/greige, blues and greens! My top brand nail brand is Essie. I enjoy their formula, brush size and the overall result of their polish over other well known brands. 

My collection has grown quite a bit, but I was able to narrow down my must haves for you. 

Here are my picks...

Zoya Carey
Revlon Colorstay Top Coat
Essie Shine Of The Times
Essie Yogaga
Essie Mojito Madness
Essie Bikini So Teeny
Essie Miss Fancy Pants
